Sorry about the delay in posting, I just finished the new display case and gun stand for Vera and thought I'd share the images with you.
Her display stand is made out of Bubinga (rosewood) and the case is a mix of mahogany and doug fir.
I put together a whole series of pictures of the design, and building process if anyone wants to see how the case or Vera's display stand was made... I can put up a display case build feature. I have 2 larger display cases with other props using the same building technique.
The pictures are when I received Vera (in her traveling case) and the 3 of the final display case with several other larger props that needed a display platform.
I put up several pictures in the image gallery on this site showing what it takes to build a display case like this in your house. Please note; doing all of the prep and woodwork BEFORE you break open the wall, helps things a lot with the wife during the construction. :D

Wow! That display is really awesome. I like that it really has that professional look. Almost like something that you could see in a museum.

Really nice job. Congrats again!

Very nice indeed.
May have been on the losin' side, still not convinced it was the wrong one.
